This might not make much sense if you're not familiar with MS Paint Adventures. It also might not make much sense even if you are familiar with it, in which case I apologize.

Admittedly it's been a while since I last read MS Paint Adventures, but I recently started reading the latest epic offering, Homestuck, and within a short while I was completely hooked — drawn in by the hilarious narrative, which soon opened up into a story and universe(s) so wonderfully crafted that I actually did find it hard to stop reading.

The level of detail and consistency poured into the plot, and the relationships between the characters and their interactions is astounding (especially given one of the fundamental elements used in both the story and the narrative itself, which I won't get into because sploilerz, maybe kinda sorta probably), and it is easily one of the most involved and creatively told stories I've read to date, online or off.

So yeah, if you haven't already done so, I highly recommend loading up MS Paint Adventures and getting stuck in.

(Also, apologies to Andrew Hussie for doing a rather naff job of aping your art)

that last panel.. awesomeness.

I loved Problem Sleuth to death (I'm even wearing my Sleuth Diplomacy t-shirt as I type), but despite trying at least three times, I haven't gotten into Homestuck. HELP ME

IT STARTS OFF LIKE THAT WHERE YOU JUST READ IT STRAIGHT THROUGH IN LIKE 3 DAYS

BUT THEN YOU REALIZE THAT YOU NEED TO GO BACK AND REREAD SOME THINGS FOR CLARITY AND SUDDENLY YOU'VE READ IT ALL AGAIN

AND THEN YOU START WANTING TO ROLEPLAY WITH SOME FRIENDS AND YOU CHECK UP ON ACT ONE TO SEE HOW THE MECHANICS WORK AGAIN AND SUDDENLY YOU'VE READ IT ALL AGAIN

AND THEN YOU REALIZE THAT ANDREW HUSSIE HAS FORESHADOWED EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE AND IS PLANNING TO DO AT LEAST ONCE SO YOU GO BACK TO LOOK FOR CLUES AND SUDDENLY

YOU'VE READ IT ALL


AGAIN

Haha that sounds about right! XD (and I couldn't help but imagine I was reading that in Courier Bold >u>)

I can definitely see myself rereading it from the start, certainly once its all wrapped up as well. Mr Hussie is a damn Master at foreshadowing (and I guess also at aftshadowing?)

That's one thing I'm starting to fret now that I'm up to date with the story; consuming everything up to now at once it was fairly easy to keep track of everything, but now I'm going to be reading at the pace of the updates, there's an increased likelihood that I'll end up forgetting something. And I'll have to go back to the start and reread every comic.

All of the comics.
